Dorking Community Recycling Centre

Coronavirus - Community Recycling Centres update 16 June 2021

In line with the governments announcement implementing a 4 week pause to the easing of the current step 3 lockdown measures, the lifting of restrictions at Surrey's Community Recycling Centres (CRC's) will now not take place on the 21 June 2021. This decision will be reviewed in 4 weeks time.

From 2 April, a wider range of materials has been accepted at Bagshot, Cranleigh, Dorking and Warlingham community recycling centres (CRCs).

These sites now accept non-recyclable black bag and bulky wastes in addition to a full range of recyclable wastes.

Please check the CRC you wish to visit for more detail.

Surrey's Community Recycling Centres (CRCs) continue to remain open.

From the 12 April some Revive re-use shops have reopened please check the CRC you wish to visit

Please do not visit the CRCs unless your journey is essential – stay at home. You should not visit the CRCs if you are any of the following:

  • Extremely vulnerable and are remaining at home for shielding purposes.
  • Symptomatic with coronavirus (COVID-19).
  • In 10-day self isolation. (Please refer to the NHS website for specific guidance on self isolation)

Introducing ANPR at our CRCs from early 2021 onwards.

Surrey County Council is introducing Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) technology at thirteen of its fifteen Community Recycling Centres. The system will capture and read an image of visitors' vehicle number plates to enable monitoring of usage and to assist in identifying unauthorised users. For further information on what we do with this information please read our Privacy notice.

The cameras will be installed in March with the system going live shortly thereafter.

In addition vans, pickups and trailers will no longer be able to access this site.

The nearest alternative sites are Leatherhead CRC and Earlswood CRC.

Please see our webpage: Changes to our community recycling centres, for more information, and below for details on what you can bring and what you cannot bring to Dorking CRC.
